How to Improve Brand Engagement in a Digital Era



As a business, entrepreneur, consultant, or influencer getting your audience to interact with your brand may seem like an uphill battle. However (unless you are really lucky!) brand engagement and social media marketing take time to produce results.


As a brand, you must do the hard work of building relationships with your audience on social media. At times it may feel like you are shouting into the void. However the internet is constantly echoing your shouts. Do not expect instant results for your efforts. Social media marketing is a long-term game, and brand engagement is the result.


If you would like to build steady engagement on your social media. You must be consistent in your approach. No one likes an inconsistency and you do not want that aspect associated with your brand. Create a social media marketing plan to make sure you are consistent on each social media platform.


As a brand you must develop your niche or expertise. What do you offer to your audience that they will enjoy or find useful? Provide information, resources, media, or opinions that your audience will want to engage with.


If you sell products or services, do not promote yourself too often. Not many people like the feeling of being sold to all the time. Adopt a give, give, sell approach. Give knowledge, opinions, or entertainment before asking your audience to purchase your goods or services.


In addition, to increase brand engagement, you must engage with your audience. Be active when your audience engages with your content. Respond in a timely matter to the posts and comments on your page. Respond positively to both positive and negative feedback. Your brand will eventually develop its own personality. Make sure that your brand's personality is represented in every interaction with your audience.


One consideration you should assess is the workload it take to be active on multiple social accounts. While having a profile on different social media platforms can be beneficial for your brand, it can also be very time consuming and exhausting. If you are unable to be consistent on every platform you own, it is better to just focus on one or two.
